NV Domaine J. Laurens Crémant de Limoux (Languedoc, France)

C-R-E-M-A-N-T spells value! The value comes from the fact that this is made in the same exact way as Champagne except it’s from an area called Limoux in France’s Languedoc region down south. The bubbles are created by secondary fermentation occurring in the bottle; not carbonation-by-injection like any old soda-pop. This is mostly Chardonnay, all perky and punched up with lemony, green-appley notes, serious finesse and things that make you go, “mmmm.”

Drink with friends and: pizza with prosciutto
